R-Lene Mijares de Lang

« Return to Honorees

R-Lene is a third-generation “Mijares” to continue the American dream of her immigrant grandmother who began Mijares Mexican restaurant in Pasadena. R-lene affectionately refers to her grandmother as the “tortilla matriarch” who taught her from age 12 all about the art of the tortilla. R-lene is another ultimate volunteer within the community and church. Prior to returning to Mijares to help her family fun the restaurant, R-lene spent 14 years as a classroom teacher. She and her husband Gordon are members of St. Andrew Parish in Pasadena and parents of a son, Derek who is studying music in London.
